major news story just up the coast from us here in california. it was dinner time last night, about 6:15 in san bruno, california, the routine of a normal thursday in the neighborhood was shattered by an explosion so loud it was heard for miles. then came the geyser of flames shooting 300 feet in the air and then the noise. people near the blast zone understandably thought it was an earthquake, a nuclear explosion, perhaps a plane had gone down. turned out to be a natural gas line exploding and a fire that wasn't brought under control until just this afternoon. san bruno is a city of abo 30,000 people, give or take, just south of san francisco, just west of that city's airport, sfo. federal investigators have converged on the neighborhood where the gas main blew up. we begin our broadcast tonight from the scene. our own kristen welker and miguel almaguer are there for us. good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. the blast has already been called a state of emergency. this city reeling from an explosion so powerful it claimed lives and forever charred the landscape here. as day

story for us. mike, good morning. >> good morning, carl. how are you. yes, there's been a lot of controversy, and it's been building leading township this day. just think of what's happened in the past couple of weeks leading up to this commemoration of 9/11. in fact, no sooner will the last of the names be read and the last of the moments of silence be acknowledged at this point that two separate protests will form, yes, near ground zero, but, more importantly, in the site of that proposed islamic cultural center and mosque. one protesting the mosque itself. the other group in protest against racism and anti-muslim sentiment. there's so much of that in recent weeks. think of some of the examples. some say this is a christian company and they should build their mosques in foreign countries, and a radio dj in houston saying that if they build a mosque, i hope somebody blows it up. all of that leading to today. even president obama has been drawn into this talking about the now abandoned plan to burn those korans by florida pastor terry jones. >> although this may be one individual
